The Nature in the Neighborhood(NitN) project grew out of the needs expressed by PSU students who desired avenues of involvement in local environmental issues and the needs of local resource management agencies (Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (THPRD), METRO, Portland Parks) that lacked resources to develop inventories and surveys of natural resources in the Portland area. In the summer of 2003, three students participated in a pilot project to survey some narural parks in the THPRD district. The scope of the project was expanded to encompass the Capstone goals and proposed as a course the following fall. This summer of 2004 is the first run of this project as a full capstone.
